Improved livelihoods by building sustainable micro and small enterprises

Our Belief

The services we provide, as an Institution, must contribute to poverty reduction and wealth creation as such we must always employ responsible practices towards our clients and employees. We believe that a good loan takes a family out of poverty and creates wealth, but a bad loan sinks them deeper into hopelessness. Therefore, we will do only good loans since we care about our clients.

Better than a local bank!

“As middle-aged entrepreneur, I was hesitant to approach IPED. I had seen the marketing and advertising but wasn’t sure if it was for me. However, I decided to approach IPED and the only question I am asking myself is, “Why didn’t I reach out sooner?” Thank you to IPED for their unrelenting support, guidance, and assistance. I have tripled my business in less than 5 years. Highly recommended! ” – Adam C.
